My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce always carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

Phew everyone .. .. .. are you warm enough ?!?!?

Very warm in my neck of the woods and if I open my craft room window all my papers fly about!! LOL!!!

Just settled down for a good old blog hop and a quick crafty share.
This used:

Image: Personal Impressions "P1502P"
Backing Papers: DCWV "Latte Stack"
Nestabilities: Labels Two
Josy Rose: Nail Heads
Cord from the stash box

Whilst colouring this little beauty part of it made me "jump" as in it startled me .. .. as I saw a little face in the flower on the left - now when I look at the stamp that is all I see LOL!!

What do you think?

What a great post yesterday's creation turned out to be - it certainly sparked off some good memories for lots of us. I like it when that happens.

Have a good evening everyone.

Love Jules xx

Yup, I see it too Jules. It's still lovely though!

You've sparked another memory. The first dining table we ever bought I could clearly see a face repeated in the veneer about 3 times altogether. It gave me the creeps so I was glad I had made a large circular crochet mat so I could keep it covered up, Lol!

PS It was 48 in my craftroom/conservatory when I got back from a couple of hours in town. It's still 32 now AND I DON'T LIKE IT. Give me Spring and Autumn any day!

Beautiful card, Jules! I was quite glad to be visiting my dad today as it was a 50 mile round trip in my car with Air Con! I don't think I'd cope without it at the moment. I've got my windows open and a huge number of flying things have joined me. I might brayer a couple of moths if they aren't careful!

Happy crafting

Hi Jules, wow what a fabulous image and a really gorgeous card. Its a bit cooler here today thank goodness but Im sure the garden would love a shower. I got the fright of my life when I moved a plant on my patio and a toad jumped down my arm. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxx

Jacee said...

Lovely card Jules, really like the colours, such a nice change from pastels, very classy. See what you mean about the face, you'll never see it any other way now you've noticed it.
